Locally owned and managed company that does 1st rate work. They have provided routine and emergency service to us for several years and they do a great job. The company owner is hands-on, personally responsive and knowledgeable.
One of the best things you can say about any company doing business which we say here about
is this: if you have a question or problem about service provided, they listen and explain or fix as appropriate to the situation. This company pays attention to their customers. They care if you are satisfied. They have been around for a while, and they are not going anywhere.
We highly recommend them.

Update on the review. I have since been contacted by the GM. While the call does not change the facts associated with my personal experience, I do feel as if the level of my frustration was not recognized by
senior management and had it been known, may have been adequately addressed. The apology given certainly seemed sincere and it was obvious he had done his homework about my account prior to calling. Given better communication and responsiveness I sure several of my complaints would have been mitigated.

Original Review :
Awful Experience - start to finish. I hired
to perform yard and lawn maintenance for one year. The service was to be all- inclusive. It was not done well and repeated calls and requests for correction were almost never answered until my 4th or 5th call. Promises of having someone "In Charge" return my call were also not kept. The only time I had a direct response was when I physically went to their office on Park Street with my I-Pad filled with photos of their shoddy work. I was treated rudely by the receptionist and encouraged to leave - several times - before an office manager(?) from 'upstairs' deigned to come down to speak with me. She was appalled by the work (or lack thereof) and did have an 'deficiency appointment' scheduled to correct the situation. (BTW : it should tell you something when they have a name for this type of appointment already in their vernacular.) Unfortunately, this was a one time fix.

This service NEVER, NEVER lived up to the promise or the price and there was no-one in a management position that ever bothered to reach out to me to discuss the situation or offer to remedy the problem.
I have contracted with another firm for the next year, but was amused by the quote I received from
for renewal. The price had been increased by more that 30% to perform the same work on less of the areas covered the pervious year. It was detailed to me in the cover letter that this was not an increase, but the price necessary to perform the work they had said they would do the prior year - but this time for real. Unbelievable!

showed up on time with a helper and aerated the yard. They then overseeded and spread fertilizer. Overall the process took a little over an hour or so.
He noticed some grubs, showed me, and recommended I apply milky
Fairfax Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
for control.
After the overseeding they ran a leaf blower to clear debris off the walkways and driveway.
He was very personable, knowledgeable, and gave great advice on the status of the yard, future treatments, etc. He offered an estimate on other year-round services, but was not pushy, just very matter-of-fact.
A month later the grasses have filled in nicely on the bare spots and clover/crab grass areas. Our back and side yard are usable again! Overall we were very pleased with

and would definitely hire them again.

The first two treatments were for weed control, which were performed satisfactorily, though without any noticeable effect even after I requested a retreatment.
The problems began when they left a message in early September to announce they would be doing the aeration and overseeding the following week. They never showed up to do the service. Eveery week for the next month and half I called asked for a schedule and every time I was told that service goes through a different office and someone would be in touch. No one every showed up. Eventually I started asking for a manager, but a manager was never available and despite promises that I would get a phone call, no one every called me back.
Then, out of the blue, they did the service on Oct. 24 (nearly two months after first saying it would get done) but never notified me with a courtesy call. Because I didn't know they would be doing the work, I didn't cancel the mowing that day. The mowing negated any and all affects of the aeration and overseeding, so it had to be rescheduled again. After additional calls, I was finally told they would show up on Oct. 31. At 4:30 pm on Oct. 31, I called to say no one had arrived yet to do the work. The
Fairfax Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
employee I spoke with said they had until 6 pm and promised someone would be there. Of course, no one showed up. I called the next day and was told that because it was Halloween, they stopped work early -- and yet another apology for failing to meet my expectations. That was getting very old.
So I canceled the contract and demanded a full refund for failure to do their job properly. I was only refunded 1/3 of the money I paid them in advance for the year's worth of work. But they only serviced my property for 4 months. So at worst, I should have received 2/3 of my money back. They claim they would be happy to work to my satisfaction but have proved incompetent and unwilling to provide the service they promise.
don't use them -- you're much better off with a local company that really demonstrates good customer service, like Dream Lawns.

Can't really complain about the lawn program, however the shrub service is horrible. Last year I had a severe aphid infestation and also a scale problem. I went to a local nursery and purchased products to correct the problems and had the manager come out and explain to me why their service did not detect and correct the problem. I decided to give them another
Fairfax Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
...my mistake. Recently I noticed I have another severe scale problem on a large hedge. I called and requested a manager come out, inspect my shrubs and call me with an explanation.. I never received a call but they sent me a statement that noted I had a severe scale problem and the bush would probably need to be replaced. No kidding!! Actually, what will be replaced is

Everything about his visit was great! I submitted a request and had a quote within hours. Emailed back and forth a couple times and was able to pay online and scheduled service right away. I was able to meet
Fairfax Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
and his coworker, they are nice, educated about lawns (taught me a couple things about my lawn), very friendly and well spoken.
I'll be using him again in the future. His pricing and quick response make working with him very easy!

We started with Chemlawn, and then Tru Green bought them out. Several years ago, they seeded our lawn and there was
Fairfax Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
grass mixed in. we've had a lousy lawn ever since. The
Fairfax Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
has taken over the tall fescue despite subsequent seedings and is very shallow rooted. We have numerous bare spots (no pets, and we have an in-ground sprinkler system). Tru green is also supposed to care for our trees and shrubs. We have scale on our ornamental plum trees and they never seem to be able to get on top of it. Our burning bushes have lost all their leaves due to mites and they don't seem to look around when they're here to acertain what issues are going on in our yard. But the main reason I'm dumping this company is because I have called repeatedly to get a manager out here and even though 2 "specialists" have said they'd also tell the office a manager needed to come out, I have heard zilch.

. Nothing. This kind of non-responsiveness is UNsatisfactory.

Fairfax Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
started doing our neighbor's lawn this year. I saw them spraying today (August 2, 2012) and asked them what they were using. The pesticide applicators had no idea what the active ingredient was in the herbicide they were spraying, just that the trade name is Momentum and it's an herbicide. They did refer me to their 800 number and the person I spoke with there looked up the information and called me back - the main active ingredient is 2,4-D (the active ingredient in "agent orange"), thus the good grade for responsiveness for taking the time to get that information to me (I wanted to check what precautions I should take with our kids and pets - agricultural workers are supposed to stay out of treated fields for 48 hours, so I'll use that as a guideline).
The
Fairfax Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
website claims that they spot treat perennial weeds when present, but they were definitely broadcast spraying today. I read the instructions for Momentum, the product they were using, and it specifically says to avoid treating lawns that are stressed by hot weather and/or drought conditions. Our weather has been hot and dry, and our neighbor's lawn looks as stressed as ours - neither has been watered. So I doubt they should have been spraying that product today, if they were paying attention to the recommended application methods.
I also consider their website somewhat deceptive. The first statement under "The
Fairfax Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
Difference" is "Our organic approach makes the difference...." They may use organic fertilizers, but the herbicide they were using today is definitely not organic.

The work team was extremely accommodating. Came once and my lawn service had not cut grass short enough. No big deal for them -they returned later. I was very impressed that they used a piston-driven machine in addition to the drum design. Went over lawn 4-5 times. Wow! Looking for another Angie offer, as I can't afford their regular price.
